There are over 7,000 rare diseases that affect more than 30 million people in the United States. 50% of rare diseases affect children, 30% of whom will die before the age of 5 years. Today, the success of gene based therapies and precision medicine have brought new hope. Bridging the gap from diagnosis to treatment is greatly accelerated with the use of mouse models to explore therapeutics.
OceanView and Cumberland Crossing invite you to join us for an online presentation with Cat Lutz. She will discuss her team’s work to create these mouse models at The Rare and Orphan Disease Center at The Jackson Laboratory, helping to lower the barrier of entry for research and propelling the pace by which progress is made.
